Using EC2Rescue for Linux

EC2Rescue for Linux is an easy-to-use tool that you can run on an Amazon EC2 Linux instance to diagnose and troubleshoot possible problems. It is valuable for collecting log files, troubleshooting issues, and proactively searching for possible areas of concern. It can even examine Amazon EBS root volumes from other instances and collect relevant logs for troubleshooting Linux instances using that volume.


If you are using a Windows instance, see EC2Rescue for Windows Server.
